Evidence Based Practice

An Interprofessional Guide

Assess

EBP always starts and ends with the patient.  As a health care professional, you will use your clinical expertise combined with the best available evidence to diagnose, treat, and care for your individual patient. One of the key clinical skills you will develop as a student is learning how to be a good listener in order to gather information about the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual condition and concerns of your patient. This collaboration will enable you to provide compassionate and evidence based care.

EPB model: evidence plus clinical expertise plus patient values
